    Can I use a Shimano M730 XT Crank 110 BCD on a 97 El Chiquillo?

    Hi Guys- I have an old 97 El Chiquillo frame and a 110 BCD old Shimano XT M730 crankset.

    I am a noob- Sorry I don't know much about this -but can i use this crankset on this frame? I don't know much about 110 BCD vs Compact 94 BCD and if there are any issues.

    As long as I use a square taper bottom bracket it should work right?

    Thanks

    AFAIK the BCD of the cranks doesn't have any effect on the compatibility of the cranks with the frame.... as you said, as long as you have the appropriate BB it should work fine..
